Rory McIlroy begins his quest to make the cut at the 103rd US PGA Championship when he tees off at 6.58pm (BST) on Kiawah Island's windswept Ocean Course.
The two-times former champion – who won his first PGA title by eight strokes at Kiawah nine years ago – carded a 75 to fall eight strokes behind overnight leader Corey Conners, whose five-under 67 gave the Canadian a two-stroke advantage over the 156-man field in South Carolina.

Conners begins his second round alongside Tony Finau (74) and Matt Fitzpatrick (73) from the first tee at 12.38pm on Friday.
McIlroy is out with former winners Brooks Koepka and Justin Thomas. Koepka – champion in 2018 and 2019 – produced a classy 69 to enjoy a share of second place, but 2017 winner Thomas could only match McIlroy with a 75 leaving him in danger of missing the weekend at the long and winding circuit.
Defending champion Collin Morikawa signed for a 70 after his first round and is out with the Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama (73) and the US Open holder Bryson DeChambeau (72) at 7.09pm in an afternoon group of genuine quality and possibilities.
Jordan Spieth is bidding to become only the sixth man in history to achieve the career grand slam alongside Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Ben Hogan, Gene Sarazen and Gary Player, but will need to improve on his first-round 73 when he tees off from the 10th at 1.33pm.
World number one Dustin Johnson will hope for better form after carding a 76 on the opening day. He begins his second round at 1.44pm alongside Open champion Shane Lowry (73) and Sergio Garcia (77) from the 10th.
2005 champion Phil Mickelson moved into early contention with an opening round of 70 and also tees off from the 10th at 12.49pm.
